What Went Wrong?

A patient in urgent need of intensive care spent six hours in an ambulance looking for an open bed. Twenty-four hospitals rejected him before he was accepted by a twenty-fifth, where he died. But Roselyne Bachelot says that there were 11 beds available in the region, so the problem is not a shortage of personnel or beds. What went wrong then? She has launched an investigation to find out.
